Abstract

The purpose of this research was to develop the of expected
characteristics indicators for Mahasarakham University’s Graduates. The sample
used in this research consisted of 283 mahasarakham university lecturers
under 18 Faculties, obtained using Stratified Random Sampling technique.
The instruments used in collecting data was a 54–item 5-Rating scale
questionnaire, with discriminating powers (rxy) ranging 0.41– 0.91 and a
reliability of 0.99. The statistics used for data analysis were median, inter
quartile ranges, mean, standard deviation, and a confirmatory factor analysis.
The results of the study were as follows:
1. Expected characteristic indicators for Mahasarakham University’s
graduates had 6 aspects of core factors with totally 54 indicators. They

indicating desirable characteristics were wisdom, human relations and
personality. Harmony indicator between model and empirical data showed
the Chi-square = 1.67, p = 0.14, Degree of freedom (df) = 5, Goodness of
Fit Index (GFI) = 0.99, Adjusted Goodness of Fit Index (AGFI) = 0.96, Root
Mean Square of Error Approximation (RMSEA) = 0.049 it showed that the
model construct validity.
In conclusion, There finding indicators could be used of develop
the expected characteristic for Mahasarakham University’s Graduates.
